    On Kapow Toys he was reduced to £10.99 so I thought I'd snaffle one up. See what all the fuss was about, you don't happen to be after a used one Bart are you? Call it 4 including postage l.

    @Decepticreeps100

    Are you still after TR-Krok? I’m going to spin past B&M on the way into work one day this week :) 

    Edit: That goes for any of you glorious bastards, happy to keep my eyes peeled.

    My MMC Frumbles will be arriving between 12:41 & 1:41 which will give me time to have a quick look before I commence the afternoon's ferret based shenanigans.

    TR Perceptor is also en route from the ebay seller I bought it from so may yet arrive today too.....I haven't decided what I'm doing about getting some better weapons yet.

    Will possibly be going to the London Film & Comic Con again this year as Rory McCann (The Hound from GoT) and Jewel Staite (Kaylee from Firefly) will be there and I have stuff I'd like to get signed.

    Exciting stuff for Generations after the POP installment.
    I'd be surprised if any of the Cybertron Wars figures are based on any Activision related Games as the games have all been pulled from gaming platforms such as PS-store and steam.

    Custom Headmaster Headcanon: Because they remind me of Silver Age Flash's earmuffs Rodders pops his antennae when using his Velocitron Speed Powers (and must've learned greater control of 'em as he now has his own Transtector)!
    DSC_0027.JPG
    I'm gonna let Rodders lie fallow/cure a bit longer before I get snagging. I've lumped a regular sticker set for Voyager Prime in with my Thunderwing set order to get him his own Matrix and a bit of window details while they're running a discount, so he can't really be totally finished before they get here.
    Plus I'm still considering if his tanker needs some flames or not, and if so how to do 'em?
    This fella might just be my most satisfying custom besides Eject!

    Off to see Black Panther this afternoon, couldn't actually get into the Cinema on Saturday it was rammed-out. That hasn't happened to me........ever. I'm used to going to see stuff when it's just me and mine and school kids on a bunk. And Ragnorok is out on DVD too?

    So, a bit of a Marvel day.

    Kapow & IDToys goodies inbound tomorrow. Life is good.

    Hope you had a blast at the stag dude! Did you get suitably hammered?

    I do! Currently serving as the left arm of Thunder Mayhem at the moment. I need to double check, but I think when he arrived his nose was a bit smushed. You could borrow him if you like for the picture dude.

    Absolutely! The new Prime Masters are amazing. Lets hope ToyHax give us a nice sticker for Octopunch's bland yellow porthole face.

    Mother of god....

    Saw Black Panther yesterday! Great show.

    Had a busy few days. The NI Science Festival is on at the moment, so me and the wife have went to a few of the events over the last few days. Highlight had to be a talk by Chris Hadfield on his space exploring and what-not. A genuinely inspiring fella. Sang Space Oddity and everything.

    I'm actually loving the look of Titan Predaking. My initial reaction was a little less enthusiastic, and yeah there are more than a few compromises, but I can't wait to see more of it. Leader Primal also looks pretty sweet. Had hoped that maybe we'd see some surprizes for the Generation line. Maybe at some other event?

    The War For Cybertron teasers are interesting. that Megatron pic looks like it could be an interesting figure. I'm guessing that despite the name leading us to believe the toys will be mainly Cybertronian, I'm betting it'll be a mix of Earth and Cybertron toys. I think it is also a safe bet the Impactor vs. Mirage set will win the vote. But come on, Deluxe Impactor? Voyager please! And instead of Mirage, hows about Spinister or Needlenose?

    In my head this War for Cybertron thing may be for the comics a reboot into a 'War Within' style series that looks at the war before it hit earth.. Or the new title is just a 'cool title' and what they are using for a post-unicron soft reboot. Probably a new war for control of Cybertron with multiple factions.

    Dude he looks amazing. Any plans with the shins, or you happy with the blue? and plans for the chest? I do enjoy Rodimus and his Spacebus mode, but I'd like to see an update of Energon Rodimus Prime. The long-nosed truck mode was pretty awesome (even if the figure is a dumpy bastard). You're custom here certainly ticks a box for me.


    RTS Tracks is fine. Really it is. Better than the shorter, stumpier Gen Wheeljack. But an updated Tracks would be most welcome.
